Hobbiton Movie Set Tour Rotorua
Hobbiton Movie Set Tour
Poppies Daisies and Marshmallow flowers spring up from the quaint little gardens, outside the tiny round doors of the cute little hobbit holes. Welcome to the Shire – home to Frodo, Sam, Bilbo, Merry and Pippin from Tolkien’s phenomenal movie adaptation of The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit trilogies.
Your Hobbiton Movie Set Tour begins in Rotorua, with a luxury coach trip across the picturesque Kaimai Ranges on your way to the small town of Matamata. Along the way, you will enjoy commentary on the history of the region and share stories relevant to your trip. Matamata is a beautiful town, which was once known exclusively for its excellent dairy and equestrian industries, but is now internationally renowned, due to the privately owned farm on the outskirts of town that was transformed for the movies. This 1,250 acre working sheep farm is gorgeous in itself, with sweeping views of the distant Kaimai Ranges and lush green rolling countryside – it’s no wonder this place was selected for the creation of the Hobbiton Movie Set!
The Hobbit holes were rebuilt again for The Hobbit movies and will now remain decorated in the condition they were seen in the movies. The inclusion of the Green Dragon Inn, the Mill, the Party Tree, double arched bridge and other attractions from the movie means you will get a chance to completely immerse yourself in the Hobbit fantasy.
As you are escorted through the site, you will spend two hours learning about how the set was built, where particular scenes were filmed and all of the behind the scenes gossip from Middle Earth. You will be awestruck at the detail of the fabulous structures and delighted by the excellent photo opportunities. Kids adore this place and adults are taken back to their childhood – this tour is interesting, exciting and a total ball of fun!
After you spend a lovely day soaking up the magical atmosphere of the Hobbiton movie set tour, you will return to Rotorua along the same scenic route and will arrive in the early evening.
